Do we?Posted: June 13, 2008
“If something that we didn’t know we had disappears, do we miss it?”
I don’t know what kind of reflection Meredith Grey wanted us to do, but this got me thinking for a second here. Do we or do we not miss something we didn’t know was ours? A hat, a disease, a song, a friend. It depends. People come and go, so do things; usually, we don’t know what we got until it’s gone. But the story changes when we didn’t know we had it — ‘it’ being whatever we had — in the first place. Oh, well. What we can’t see, can’t hurt us, right?
